JAGUAR TO LAUNCH Jaguar XKR-S AND CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF E-TYPE IN GENEVA


Jaguar will launch its most potent series production car ever, the all-new Jaguar XKR-S, at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1.


This all-new model will significantly broaden the appeal of the XK range, offering enthusiastic drivers a compelling, fresh choice in the luxury GT class.


With an uprated supercharged V8 engine, overhauled suspension and a new aerodynamically-driven design, the Jaguar XKR-S is the ultimate expression of Jaguar???s long held duality of purpose: GT luxury with incredible performance.


???The Jaguar XKR-S is a bold and exciting new model for Jaguar,??¯ said Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar???s new Global Brand Director. ???We expect to attract both loyal and new Jaguar driving enthusiasts who still want the comfort, opulence and class only a Jaguar can offer, combined with inspirational performance.??¯


The Jaguar XKR-S produces 550PS and 680Nm of torque, enough power to offer a top speed of 186mph (300km/h). Its performance credentials speak for themselves: 0-60mph takes 4.2 seconds, with 0-100mph dismissed in just 8.6 seconds.


The Jaguar XKR-S is not merely the quickest Jaguar ever, but also the most agile, responsive and driver-focused. It exploits the XK???s strong, lightweight aluminum body architecture to maximize both handling and economy. Alongside its incredible performance, the Jaguar XKR-S is the only car in its class that emits less than 300g/km CO2.



Bespoke suspension changes to the front and rear offer ultimate precision, control and driver appeal, while a reprogrammed Adaptive Dynamics system allows the enthusiastic driver to explore the edges of the handling envelope.


Full details, images and video of the Jaguar XKR-S will be available on Geneva press day ??? March 1.


Alongside the exciting new Jaguar XKR-S, Jaguar will be marking the 50th anniversary of the E-Type with the first in a series of celebrations that take place during 2011.


Jaguar will be hosting E-Type drives at the Parc des Eaux Vives in Geneva, where the original car was launched by the marque???s founder Sir William Lyons half a century ago.


The appeal of E-Type transcended the automotive world. Such is the inherent rightness of its proportions, stance and purity of line, that it is a permanent exhibit in New York???s Museum of Modern Art.


Its influence is still apparent in Jaguar???s modern range - products that offer a peerless blend of performance, comfort, cutting-edge technology and award-winning design.


???It is impossible to overstate the impact the E-Type had,??¯ said Ian Callum, Jaguar Design Director. ???Here was a car that encapsulated the spirit of the revolutionary era it came to symbolize. We???re looking forward to celebrating achievement and looking forward with our all-new sports cars in Geneva.??¯
